Innovative Strategies in Field Experiences for Preparing Educational Administrators. ERIC/CEM State-of-the-Knowledge Series Number Twenty-One. UCEA Monograph Series Number Eight.
Cronin, Joseph M.; Horoschak, Peter P.
In this monograph, the authors identify four different strategies for field experiences that offer administrative trainees positive applications of theory to practice in educational planning, management, and supervision. In historical perspective, a case study comparison of field experiences conducted at Harvard University and the University of Chicago precedes a report on the current status of field programs as shown by the survey returns of a UCEA questionnaire regarding issues involved in training school administrators. The four strategies -- the traditional school system survey, the human relations approach, the clinical/political action strategy, and the anthropological or sociological research approach -- vary according to the study focus, the type of involvement of students and faculty, and the product or outcomes. Descriptions of specific field training experiences illustrate innovative approaches in the application of the four strategies. (ER)
